Storyline

In a flashback story told as the men rest on a rainy night, Sgt. Saunders recalls the experiences of himself and several other men on the day of the D-Day invasion, including tales about Braddock, who won the platoon pool for when the invasion would take place; Doc Walton, who was reluctant to go into battle; Caje (called "Caddie" in this episode), who is accompanied by another Cajun; and Lt. Hanley, who at the time was still a sergeant, and had little battle experience compared to Saunders. Following the landing, the men move inland and come upon a farmstead held by a squad of German infantry. Written by aldanoli

My first experience with Combat!
16 June 2006 | by (Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Combat! originally aired the year before I was born. Over the years, I somehow never had the opportunity to see show, so this was my first experience. I'm glad the DVD set begins with "A Day in June" as the first episode. The story of how the guys went through D-Day and on to their first mission seems to be a good starting point. While you could pick at the show's lack of realistic action or the absence of blood or the fact that the Germans are treated as little more than stiffs, but these weaknesses are more than offset by the positives. Good acting, intelligent writing, and likable characters make Combat! and the episode "A Day in June" a winner.
